Many prehistoric cave paintings were made by children

That's pretty cool. Parents always playing with little idiots kids throughout time lol

What's more, the process of blowing pigment down a tube to produce these paintings would not have been possible for such a young child to accomplish on their own, meaning that they would have likely received the assistance of a parent or older sibling

20.000 years ago: Child holding its hand against a wall, blowing paint, thinking: "This was a fun game".

We 20.000 years later, looking at the wall, thinking: "This is probably an advanced religious practise, the meaning of which we don't understand, but probably it has a deep meaning".

Many Coastal Algonquian petroglyphs portraying clan symbols are just graffiti.

Or maybe the cave was just the beginnings of the long tradition across all cultures of pre and post partum confinement / isolation till the little ones are old enough to be the extra eyes and ears for the community. 

That's quite possibly the natural  origin of the ritual to "coming out into the world" before the present religion tinged "birthed" into the world.

Truly remarkable. To realize those hands were from ancient, ancient children.

Wow.
